I am not worthy

I am not worthy of all the unfailing love and faithfulness
you have shown to me, your servant
(Genesis 32:10; NLT).

1. Lord,
I am not worthy of your light,
Yet you support and guide me
Day and night.

2. Lord,
I am not worthy of your truth,
Yet you inspire and teach me
From my youth.

3. Lord,
I am not worthy of your peace,
Yet you forgive my failures
Without cease.

4. Lord,
I am not worthy of your love,
Yet you, for me, gave up
Your flesh and blood.


1. God is light (1 John 1:5; NIV).

Your right hand supports me (Psalm 18:35; NLT).

He guides me along right paths (Psalm 23:3; NLT).

2. The Spirit is truth (1 John 5:6; NKJV).

You have taught me from my youth (Psalm 71:17; NKJV).

3. The Lord is peace (Judges 6:24; NLT).

He forgives all my sins (Psalm 103:2; NLT).

4. God is love (1 John 4:16; NIV).

We know what real love is because Jesus gave up his life for us (1 John 3:16; NLT).

  • Knowing that we are not worthy of Him, nor ever will be, is a great source of release from the bondage of trying to be worthy. We just need to “let it be” as the song says, accept it and rejoice in the fact He chooses us. Regardless of our unworthiness He showers us in Love and Provisions daily, “Hallelujah what a Saviour!”
    God bless you Ruth, thank you for your poetic gems of wisdom.
